  Kate Greenaway Friday 9 November 2001  
If you're a mother or a grandmother you'll know Kate Greenaway's children from your old childhood - cheery and apple cheeked with long cotton frocks an floppy hats.

You'll also know the leading names that came after her - people like Quentin Blake, Patrick Benson, Colin McNaughton and Mick Inkpen - from reading to a new generation of youngsters.
Kate Greenaway died 100 years ago this week. Jill Burridge remembers the children's illustrator's life.
